Here are the details on how your first visit will go
We will examine every single tooth in your mouth
This includes your gums, tongue and cheeks. Having a healthy mouth will help with having healthy teeth. Your dentist wilexamine all of the surfaces and structure in your mouth for any cavities, gum disease, infections and other potential health problems.
We’ll clean all around your gums
Your hygienist or dentist will clean below and above your gum line with a dental scraper to remove plaque built-up and tartar. Once all of that is removed, they floss and polish your teeth.
We accept X-Rays as well
The dentist will order a set of X-Rays for your entire mouth if you haven't had one recently. X-Rays can reveal issues in your mouth that the dentist can’t see just by looking around. These things can include chipped teeth, infections, cavities and teeth decay, even life-threatening problems like tumors and oral cancers.
We will talk about your oral health
Your dentist will make sure you know the basic techniques of brushing and flossing and let you know if there are any problems or signs of a cavity or gum disease. If we see a need for specialized care, we’ll tell you why and go through all of your options.
Last, you dentist will make a plan
It's great when you leave the appointment with healthy teeth! We will give you a plan for taking care of your teeth at home and a reminder to return for an appointment in six months. If you need more steps or treatment we will help you plan out what it is you need, including financing from Brident.
